- The admissions landscape: pathways into engineering (LLE and T levels) on 22nd November @ 14:00
- Equality of opportunity? An audience with John Blake and Omar Khan on 29th November @ 13:00
EAN Access and Admissions Forum 2023paid
Opening with an auspicious panel on the admissions landscape, we’ll delve into lifelong learning, T levels, and maths on entry before workshopping some key questions:
– How do we accommodate students with different levels of learning and different strengths and weaknesses?
– How do we recognise potential?
– What has been the impact of Covid-19 in terms of different types of learning and other challenges?
We’ll then move on to consider access and regulation and how universities on what the new risk-based approach means for Engineering. Our experts go first, and then it is your chance to consider:
– What is the intersection between access risks that an engineering department faces with the risks identified in EOR?
– Is there a higher requirement for contextualisation in engineering?
– Do APP’s capture the outreach conducted by an engineering department?
– Does outreach at department level form part of a greater whole and how do we measure engineering access?
Also featuring the EPC engineering enrolments survey 2023 launch (get your survey in very soon).

16.15–16.30 Plenary, roundup and close
Please go to the College Building Reception and you will be guided to the Northampton Square main reception.
The Forum will take place in a room with limited access for people with impaired mobility (a short flight of steps with a stairlift that may not be functional at the time of the Forum). We are determined that this should not prevent anyone from attending, but it is essential that we are made aware of access needs in advance. Please contact us if you have registered and did not provide details.
